From its inception and on to the present day, Jaeger-LeCoultre has produced timepieces that are both timeless and perpetually-appealing. Though their quality is often undersung, JLC's present-day pieces sing to us in the same soft, alluring timbre as their vintage offerings. With understated elegance, they exude an appeal that even the most steadfast of vintage collectors can't resist.

We love JLC in part because they are a true manufacture, producing a wide range of in-house movements. With a cadre of truly iconic pieces - among them the Reverso, the Deep Sea Alarm, the Memovox, the Geophysic (both the 1958 original and the 2014 reissue), and the Mark XI, to name a few - JLC has managed to encompass both technical and aesthetic brilliance.

Among JLC's offerings, what especially attracts our eye are the modern pieces that, at first glance, resemble vintage watches. The Master Control Triple Date could pass for a watch 60 years its senior. Indeed, the Master Control takes design cues from a triple calendar wristwatch released in the 1940s. The vintage touches are there: the stainless steel case with almost impossibly-bright finishing in an attractive 37mm; the distinctive red-tipped central date hand; a calendar track around the perimeter of the dial; and a central day and month display, here shown in French.

It has the look and feel of an older watch, but with the technical excellence and dependability that distinguishes their modern products. This watch is powered by the elegant Caliber 891 movement. As mentioned, JLC manufactures their own movements, designed to meet rigorous quality standards. Each movement produced by JLC must pass a 1000-hour test before leaving the factory. This test, more punishing than even the tests imposed by COSC, is implemented only by JLC.
